Seattle-based USGS geologist Brian Sherrod will present "Paleoseismology of the northwestern part of the Yakima Fold and Thrust Belt, Washington."  Brian has been using a backhoe and other techniques to study earthquake faults in central Washington.  Our faults have been more active than previously believed.  Come hear the latest from the guy doing the work!
